Here’s the 2016 Forbes Highest-Paid Actresses List
Forbes offers up its 2016 list of highest-paid actresses, and for the second year in a row, Jennifer Lawrence sits atop the list.
The 26-year-old raked in a staggering $46 million over the past year, beating out all her competition by a mile. According to Forbes, her earnings consist largely of a profit slice from the big box office gross ($653.4 million) of her final Hunger Games installment, as well as a big upfront fee for the forthcoming Passengers.
Coming in behind Lawrence is Melissa McCarthy, who earned $33 million for 2016; Scarlett Johansson is third with $25 million; Jennifer Aniston is fourth ($21 million); and Chinese actress Fan Bingbing rounds out the top 5 with $17 million.
